Best Historical Sites to Add to Your Bucket List While Vacationing in North Myrtle Beach

While its most often sunny days at the beach that calls visitors to the coast of beautiful South Carolina, there are numerous other places to find beauty here in North Myrtle Beach. From sight seeing opportunities to local historic landmarks and original beach music powerhouses, we invite you to take some time to experience one of the great local hot spots below. We truly feel a visit to one or more of these places which are so unique and special to our city will help you develop an encompassing appreciation for the city of North Myrtle Beach.

North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum

North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum

www.northmyrtlebeachmuseum.com
799 2nd Ave. N
North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582
(843) 427-7668

Although its a relatively new landmark, the North Myrtle Beach Historical Museum is a result of years of hard work and planning from local businessman Dick Hester, with help of long-time residents. Opened in 2013, the museum boasts an impressive collection of memorabilia, photographs, and exhibits which preserve the rich history of North Myrtle Beach, while also celebrating its modern day culture.
Since its opening, this North Myrtle Beach house of history has become a must-see for tourists who come from near and far. The collection of exhibits and events encompasses our neighbors from Loris to Longs, and Ocean Drive to Little River. Stop by and see; there is so much history to learn about this beautiful coastal region of South Carolina.

Ocean Drive Pavilion

Ocean Drive Pavilion

www.odpavilion.net
91 S. Ocean Blvd.
North Myrtle Beach, SC 29598

The original club to be at for a night on the town! The Ocean Drive Pavilion is the resurrection of the historical Roberts Pavilion, originally built in 1936 before Kings Highway was even paved across the Grand Strand.
This landmark was the hot spot to be in the 1940s and 50s, full of drinks, fun, beach music, dancing, and laughter complemented by the crashing of the ocean waves and beautiful sunsets.
After Roberts Pavilion was destroyed by Hurricane Hazel in 1954, Ocean Drive Pavilion was erected shortly after, using salvaged timbers and the same foundation as its predecessor. New building, same historic value and sense of nostalgia for those who remember the good old days.
Today, even though decades have passed, not much has changed at the old OD Pavilion. Its still a great place to enjoy live music, walk the boardwalk, get together with friends and celebrate the night away with the spirit of all who danced before!

Fat Harolds Beach Club

Fat Harolds Beach Club

www.fatharolds.com
212 Main St.
North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582
(843) 249-5779

Appropriately (albeit not so eloquently) named after its founder, Fat Harolds is a classic stop to make while out on the town here in North Myrtle Beach. Both visitors to the dance club and friends of the late Harold Bessent (Fat Harold) rave about the long-standing hot spot and its easy going atmosphere, great music and loyal regular clientele.
The club has won the Best Beach Music Club award for 13 years straight and the popular dance spot has been around for nearly seven decades, still going strong after the founder and original owners passing in 2015.
Fat Harolds has a huge open dance floor which is shakin at any given time to the sounds of the jukebox or live band. Theres also a full-service bar, beefy menu, and youll find some the best Shag dancers across the Grand Strand!
If theres one night out you cannot miss while in North Myrtle Beach, its a night out at historic Fat Harolds Beach Club.

Cherry Grove Pier

Cherry Grove Pier North Myrtle Beach

www.cherrygrovepier.com
3500 N. Ocean Blvd.
North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582
(843) 249-1625

There are numerous piers across the regional coastline of North Myrtle Beach, but the Cherry Grove Pier is one with a sentimental feeling of small-town history behind the landmark.
The 985 feet structure was built in the 1950s (before North Myrtle Beach was its own city) and has become a staple of the Cherry Grove community since, attracting both locals and tourists as a result of its scenic beauty, fishing opportunities, and all around peaceful experience.
In the 1970s, the pier was renovated and upgraded to include an expanded tackle shop and new restaurant. Being able to walk the pier, take photos of friends and family looking down at the ocean, and then stopping for a bite to eat just a few yards away is a recipe for cherished memories while vacationing here in North Myrtle Beach.

Kings Highway

Kings Highway North Myrtle Beach

Chances are, sometime during your visit to the Grand Strand, youre going to find yourself traveling down Kings Highway, one of the major routes used daily by commuters across North Myrtle Beach.
When youre driving down this seemingly typical road, we encourage you to close your eyes (but not if youre in the drivers seat!) and imagine 300 years ago. This area of travel, which would later be named Kings Highway, was part of a passageway that stretched 1,300 miles, from New England to Charleston! In fact, the Georgetown Highway (as it was originally named) was one of the first USPS mail carrying routes.
Of course at the time, the highway wasnt much of a road at all; it was unpaved, sandy and often difficult to navigate. That didnt stop it from being a popular means of travel, and even George Washington himself used the passageway for his travels in the late 1700s.
Kings Highway was officially paved in 1940, finally becoming a concrete piece of North Myrtle Beachs fascinating history.

We hope youll take a few hours during your vacation to experience some of the rich history and popular places of celebration here in North Myrtle Beach.

Coffee Shops and Bookstores in the North Myrtle Beach Area

One thing that makes the beach so appealing is the varied activities you can enjoy along with the breeze and sunshine. Time at the ocean can be spent playing sports, building sandcastles, jogging, or simply sitting still, breathing easy, and relaxing.

The ambiance of the ocean view and sound of the waves crashing onto the shoreline can set the mood for diving into a book and engulfing yourself in your favorite story for a few hours.
